lincoln noted in the his first inaugural address that, quote: one section of our country believes slavery is right and ought to be extended while the other believes it is wrong b and ought to be extended -- sorry, and ought not to be extended, and this is the only substantial dispute, period. closed quote. the president of the confederate states of america, jefferson davis, reminded his congress in 1861 these are his words: the labor of african slaves was and is indispensable to our prosperity so that with interests of such overwhelming magnitude imperilled by the election to the presidency of an anti-slavery man by abraham lincoln, he meant, the people of the southern states were driven to the adoption of some course of action to avert the danger with which they were openly menaced. and that course of action, of course, was leaving the federal union. davis was not overstating the stakes for him if his fellow -- for him and his fellow slave owners, the more than 12 million souls who resided in the southern states in 1860. nearly one out of three of those people was enslaved, was owned out
by chance. when lincoln creates -- lincoln creates some really great was but one of the first words he thought about secession. he said that secession is the sugar coating, the impact of this country. lincoln when he first used sugarcoated, the printers of the united states comes to lincoln and said we cannot put this in the official record, the word sugarcoated. and lincoln says i can't imagine any american not knowing what you're saying. lincoln was also, again i'm going back to william safire's influence, one of the first uses of cool, not innocent of temperature but in the sense of being callous, he said, something he said that was cool. that was callous. it was a behavioral thing. so again, those are, a word like cool. obama could come up with a new name of cool. that's another thing. one word and you give it different many. as i said with all these different meanings. and how i did this was i did a lot of reading and i get a lot of use of huge proprietary databases at the library of congress. 19th century database where you can find the original document in which 1807 when jeffer

are following a lincoln town car they thought that was suspicious. they stopped the car. one thing leads to another. a couple gang bangers in the car. lo and behold, the gun gets c's, a glock nine-millimeter pistol. because of the good process is still in place, that gun goes right to the illinois timeout, testfired and the test fires search through the database and this time there is a hit, a match. now police now attack nics from from that lincoln town car ways that gun used to kill bloomberg eight years before. the problem is that the people driving that car in possession of that gun eight years before were probably 10 or 11 years old they couldn't reach the pedals of that lincoln town car. frankly i have a problem reaching the pedals on a lincoln town car myself. but what's happened here is police depended on information and data available to them from the inside of the gun, the ballistics data to determine what crime that gun was used to commit. but now they were stymied. so what do they do? they turned to the outside of the gun. they made models hillier number, nomenclature, descri
and prayers. as he left the west front of the capitol, a nostalgic turned back toward the lincoln memorial. >> i want to take a look out one more time. >> now there were shades of the campaign that the president winning out, success can't mean that a few people are making it and a growing number are barely scratching by. the president acknowledging that bipartisan -- or the lack of bipartisanship here in washington but noted that everyone needs to work together for the good of the country. john? >> dan, that moment at the end of your piece where the president turned around and looked, that was astounding. 23 seconds he stood there and he gazed out at the national mall to let it sink in. it must have been an extraordinary day for him. what does today hold for him after that full night of dancing he had? >> reporter: he heads to the national cathedral. the day after inauguration, the presidents always get a chance to go sit down at an interfaith service, a prayer and prayers are given not only for the president but also the vice president for their second terms. this is historic event that d
speeches and i remember both of lincolns, kennedys, fdr's. >> greta: i take it you don't remember lincolns from personal experience. >> no, but it's finer than the gettysburg address. the president's was not uplifting. it was not poetry, it was pros and part of it was pedestrian and partisan and i think he missed a golden opportunity. the whole country was watching and he should have lifted the whole country. this was part of a state of the union address and i thought the president lost an opportunity and they usually talk about what? and when i was a kid, lexington, concorde, bunker hill, stonewall, a barroom brawl in greenwich village in 1969 when the cops hassled the gays in the bar and threw them out. does that belong in a presidential inaugural? >> i thought, one thing he has been -- i mean, he speaks beautifully, inspires people. i thought he wasn't interested in his own speech. i don't think he sold it. i thought he just read it to us. i was actually quite surprised because whether you agree with him politically or not, he can just sort of. he can dazzle everybody when he speaks, bu
. and then another. and then another. he gave them a quick -- a completely inebriated inaugural address. lincoln was mortified. i unfortunately for johnson, it sets a public image of the andrew johnson. another burly disastrous vice- presidential inaugural address was calvin coolidge as vice- president. he used his address to tell the senate how they should operate. it set him off on a bad -- starting in 1937, that is when the congress started before the president. now president and vice presidents are sworn outside on the steps. the vice president lost his chance to give an inaugural address. there was one exception in that long tradition of the inauguration speech tell that the capital. that was in 1945 when franklin roosevelt was being sworn in for a fourth time. franklin roosevelt, his third inauguration was done at the capitol, but his fourth one was in the middle of world war ii. he felt this was not the inopportune time to have an elaborate inauguration. he decided on his own to move the inauguration to the south front of the capital. the joint committee was not happy with that decision.
and pennsylvania avenue before the parade starts? does everyone have to go around the capitol and lincoln memorial? >> this is a supersatisfying answer, we can get back to you. we have a team that concentrates on logistics. that was an issue four years ago with getting across pennsylvania. i can follow up afterwards and put you in touch with the right folks. >> what's your best guess for the running time of the ceremony from start to finish and parade from start to finish? >> i can handle the ceremony portion of it. we expect that the announcements on the platform, former presidents will begin around 11:00 and 30 minutes to announce everyone that will be seated on the platform. senator schumer opens the ceremony at 11:30 and expect the president to take the oath at noon and will be a couple -- beyonce immediately after that to wrap things up and the final musical act. and hope to have everyone back inside at 12:30. music begins at 9:30 in the morning and v.i.p.'s, past presidents will begin heading out to the platform at 9:45 in the morning. after the inaugural speech and the performances at the e
have to take tough votes in a few states. >> stephanie: i found myself thinking of the movie "lincoln," when the president said this will only happen if the american people want it. and i refuse to give in. that's what they said about the amendment that lincoln was trying to get passed right? >> i think moral and fiber and character of people in lincoln's time was probably a little bit higher than speaker boehner and mitch mcconnell. so i hope speaker boehner does the right thing and opens it up to a vote. if the nra has bought their power anywhere it's in the house of representative. >> i'm just going to open up a bottle of bourbon. [ glugging sound ] >> stephanie: i was hoping yesterday that he would say he loves sydney allen wade. but he didn't. >> but he'll drink to sand. >> stephanie: exactly. let's do rush limbaugh. >> been watching the -- the -- the children as human shields -- >> oh, shut up. >> that is now going on at the white house. by these guys were somber you would have thought that eulogies -- [ mumbling ] -- worked with this guy 27 hours a day. presi

ago, that dr. king stood on the steps of the lincoln memorial and said i have a dream. >> of course, this was actually the fourth time that president obama has taken the oath of office. let's bring in our panel, van jones, cnn contributor who served as president obama's green jobs adviser in 2009. sally quinn, margaret hoover, republican consultant, cornell belcher, democratic strategist who served fas a pollster for president obama's 2012 re-election team. i wonder how you think this anniversary, this martin luther king day, informed and was infused throughout president obama's remarks today. >> i'll go back to even when he was senator obama. he always talked about, he also understood the gravity and talked about, i stand on the shoulders of the great men and women of the civil right era who made this possible. even early on, many of the civil rights leaders early on in the primary process were with hillary clinton and it took a while for them to trust him and know who he was. and he used a lot of that conversation saying, look, because of you all, i am possible. and i remember we
, a nostalgic president turned back toward the lincoln memorial. >> i want to take a look one more time. i'm not going to see this again. >> reporter: before the president gets back to work, he heads to the washington national cathedral for an interfaith service for prayers to be offered up for the country and the president. it's a tradition that dates back to fdr. soledad. >> dan lothian, thank you. for the night and parties at night, really party mode in the nation's capital, while the number of official parties was scaled back from ten official parties four years ago to two official parties last night, there was no shortage of big stars and big moments, 21 acts, inuding jennifer hudson, alicia keys, stevie wonder, performed at two inaugural events. brianna keilar live in d.c. >> good morning, soledad. only two balls, but there were still tens of thousands of party goers who attended them. took over the huge washington convention center. and when it came to the entertainment, they were not disappoi disappointed. s. >> ladies and gentlemen, my better half and my dance partner, michelle ob

lincoln says her job it -- her job is to make this look easy which it is not. >> you made it to be really strong honestly to do this work. gravity is there all the time. we're not gravity defying. so your poor muscles and all the strength in your back and stomach have to hold your body up to create the illusion that you're standing on a wall. >> reporter: the only way to understand just how hard this is is to try it. >> i want you to just realize where you are. >> reporter: amelia took me to the great wall of oakland, california, the troupe's home base. >> reporter: that is locked. they put me in a safety harness -- >> the word danger -- >> reporter: i love that it says "danger" right on here. and before i knew it -- here we go over the wall. >> two of us together. hanging out on the wall in oakland. >> reporter: we were 115 feet in the air, and i learned how tough this really is. >> your core has to be really strong. your general fitness level has to be high. give me your hand. run. good. >> reporter: that is the most fun. >> back -- turn your head to one si
of abraham lincoln's skull, the bones of john wilkes. would you like to see it? i go see it. he doesn't have the artifacts from the london assassination. they had the others as well. i start thinking what if they had a serial killer re-creating the crimes of all the assassins. i is that i had's the plot for my -- i said that's the plot for my book. he wants to be the fifth assassin. >>steve: what's the name of this museum? >> the national museum of health and medicine. they moved it skwr d.c. to maryland. i held the bones of booth. and they have garfield's killer's brain. holding a jar with a brain in it; that's a cool day at work. >>steve: that's some museum i've never been to. i've never held a brain before in a museum. you started there, at that museum, and then you wind up with the idea for your new novel. but did you some real research. and the four assassins who killed american presidents do have some things in common, don't they? >> they don't do drugs. they're barely drinkers. they're all meticulously neat, of all things. and they are all four men with a cause. that's why they're so
could fight a civil war and finish the job. president lincoln said if people see the capital calling on, it's a sign we intend the union shall go on. so congress on the money, came together, were able to complete the capitol dome in the midst of the civil war and senator schumer selected this theme nowhere challenges he faces a country now. if we look at what we accomplished 150 or so we can find faith that we can overcome these obstacles again. disable and form remarks throughout the day. it will be in the program materials distributed to folks to come to the capitol to see ceremonies and you'll see in various elements program. the day for our committee begins at about 9:00 when members say to the white house for coffee and tea with the president. senator mcconnell joins that group. from there, there is coffee with the president, vice president, first lady and dr. biden as well and everyone makes their way to the capital at about 10 or 10:30 depending on how the coffee and tea proceeds. our members come a few minutes ahead of the president, will greet the president and senator schumer
-working americans. our future depend on our ability to dream big and build big. president lincoln once said you can not escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today. well, we are looking at tomorrow and we see what needs to be done. let me just conclude with this. the next big challenge for transportation will be to help congress put together the next transportation bill. now, the only reason this map 21 bill is a two-year bill because that is all the money that congress could find. we need more than a two-year bill. we need certainty we need to be able to give the states and transportation officials all over this country certainty. a five or six-year bill gives that certainty. the big debate over the next two years as congress puts together a transportation bill and many of you will be involved in this, is not what america needs. we all know what america needs. if i asked every table here to put together a list of what america needs the list would all be the same. they would be. they wouldn't be dissimilar. the debate in washington and in america when it comes to infrastructure is how
